    No, jmdrake is correct. I have consistently said that blame belongs to both Trump and the governors who followed his plan. And I'm sure you know that. But the Trumpers seem to want to let Trump himself off the hook. And I refuse to sit back and let them rewrite history that way.

    Really wish she would have taken my advice and stayed away from the media for awhile. Unfortunately, political ambitions trump messaging. Here's a message that everyone who leans right must understand: THESE PEOPLE ARE YOUR ENEMY. The press's job is to tear you down and turn the public against you. Don't give them the opportunity. You don't need them any longer. If they let you on air, it is your duty to use the seconds before they cut you off to ridicule them and speak directly to the people. Do NOT engage. Do NOT defend yourself. Bypass 'em.

    I don't accept the "one worlder" label. And I make no claims about how soon Christ will return. But the rest of what you said is a pretty good summary of my worldview. And I would add that it is also a pretty good summary of the worldview of the New Testament. Now on this part, you have it backwards. I am the one in this thread who is pointing out just how bad the DC regime is in its very essence, to the point that the US Constitution itself enables that regime's tyranny by design. It's the rest of you who I think have the overly rosy view of the Constitution that it's a more libertarian document than it really is.

    Another possibility that you guys should consider is that somebody actually can consider the issue and sincerely reach a different conclusion than you do.

    Sophistry or not, it has never been the case in this nation's history that the government has ever held that the 4th Amendment absolutely prohibited searches without warrants. I agree with you that the clause in question is intended to protect the right of the people to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures. But the conclusion you try to draw from that doesn't follow logically from it, and is neither what the text actually says, nor what it was originally intended to say.

    Of course you can. I just did, and there's no reason not to. Consider a scenario with the following three givens: 1. A state is known to have an 18-and-over population of 1,000,000 +/- 1,000. 2. the number of eligible voters in that state must be fewer than the number of people in it who are 18 and over. 3. That same state has 1,206,312 registered voters. The first given refers to an estimate with a certain margin of error. The third given refers to an actual count of registered voters with no margin of error. You can compare those numbers and see that that state has more registered voters than eligible voters. The fact that one of the numbers is an estimate doesn't invalidate that.

    I don't know how I feel about her as a "good" candidate. I think the media will "Bachman" her almost immediately if she starts to gain any traction. It remains to be seen if she can withstand that. I'm more interested in the notes she was singing... If that message takes hold, either by her or someone else, it might rouse a few people.

    You're moving the goalposts. Nobody is claiming that votes exceeded registered voters. The claim is that registered voters exceeds eligible voters in some states. You earlier denied that. You asserted in a black-and-white manner that that claim was flat out false. Now you seem to just be dancing around it. But it's really indisputable. In the case of Alaska, given the evidence you've already been shown, there is no conceivable way that there are as many eligible voters in the state as there are registered voters. This is according to the state's own data for both numbers. It has been known and reported in the mainstream media for years, and I have not seen any representative of the state's government, or anyone else besides you, try to deny that it is the case.

Colonel Sanders will be removed in favor of his adopted grandniece Coletta Sanders. Mr. Clean will be killed off in an industrial chemical accident. Snap and Pop will morph their racial identities and will take Crackle as their indentured servant. The Geico Gecko will become a chameleon and will adapt to whatever his current surroundings are. The Keebler Elves will break their bondage and will replace the sugar in their cookies with soma. Cap'n Crunch will be arrested for piracy.

    That's pretty much what he says in this quote: "Corporations don't have rights per se, but the individual who happens to own a corporation or belong to a union does have rights, and these rights are not lost by merely acting through another organization." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Ron_Paul#Freedom_of_speech Notably, he called restrictions placed on the ability of corporations to spend money on lobbying violations of the freedom of speech. I think that illustrates how he understands the rights of individuals to apply to corporations, as tools being used by individuals.

    Yes. That's what we need. More say on the part of average American voters over who the president is. "As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”-H. L. Mencken

    How is that a key word? Is there some other possible source that could be used for number of people 18 and over in a state that isn't an estimate? Even when we get results of the 2020 census, it will still be an estimate. But first of all, it's the state of Alaska's own estimate. You claimed that the state of Alaska's own website did not provide the number of eligible voters in 2020 to compare with the number of registered voters, and in fact it does (actually, not exactly, since the number of eligible voters is less than the number of people 18 and over, which is what this number is). Second, yes it's an estimate. It's not exact down to the ones digit. No population data ever can be. But it's not off by anything on the order of 10% either. If you look at the underlying figures that's available at the link I provided you on the Alaska state government website (e.g. births, deaths, migrations, baseline population data going back to the 2010 census, etc.) you will see that there's no conceivable way to get an extra 50,000 people in the state of Alaska above the state government's own estimates of its population. The state of Alaska, using its own numbers for both population 18 and over and registered voters does affirm that it has more registered voters than it has people 18 and over. And it's not within the margin of error.

    Paul doesn't call her a diakonos of God. He calls her a diakonos of the church at Cenchreae. And even if he did call her a diakonos of God, I have trouble seeing why it would be wrong to translate that as "servant." He often refers to himself and others as servants of God. When you say that it has to be translated "minister" and that "servant" and "helper" are mistranslations, it seems like you're implying that the word connotes some kind of formal leadership position (granted, the word "minister" itself can also just be a synonym for "servant" depending on the context--so I'm not saying that's a mistranslation). The word may sometimes be used for people in formal leadership positions. But there's nothing in the word itself that requires that. Notice that in almost all of the 28 occurrences of the word in the New Testament, only a few of them refer to the title of an official church office (i.e. a "deacon"). The rest of the occurrences take a more generic sense. https://www.stepbible.org/?q=version=ESV|version=SBLG|strong=G1249&options=GVUVNH&display=INTERLEAVED

    Worse yet, would you believe there are actually dating apps that force you to select a gender of the person you want to date?! Could anything be more sexist? It's literally the way the apps are designed!! They also allow you to select a race, if you can believe it! http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?552730-Postcards-from-the-Clown-Show&p=7025179&viewfull=1#post7025179 I don't know what the world is coming to when institutionalized sexism and racism are being coded into our phones!
